It works pretty well for Linux for the most part, but overall the calibration (especially around the edges) leaves a lot to be desired. I looked into fixes for this, and discovered that many windows users would go through the tedious task of getting up to 100 calibration values using Windows' default calibration tool. I've only been able to figure out how to get four calibration points using xinput_calibration. Does anyone know if xf86-input-wacom supports this, and how I could use this feature if it exists?

fwiw, the wacom driver has (for historical reasons, mainly) it's own set of
mailing lists.

however, the answer to your question: no, the driver doesn't have any
capabilities for this at the moment, 4 points is all you get. sorry.
